Water Capabilities

Water Rescue

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park has many lochs and rivers including the UK’s largest loch – Loch Lomond.

The team have membership of:

  • Water Safety Scotland
  • Stirling and Clackmannanshire Flood Partnership
  • The City of Glasgow Water Safety Group
  • West of Scotland RRP Voluntary Sector Functional Group

At a basic level every operational team member is trained to work safely beside water and use a throwline.

All team vehicles have a throwline and life jackets as part of their operational equipment.

Since the team’s formation in 1998 we have utilised boats to conduct search operations and provide safety for our operational personel conducting searches beside waterways.

The team currently operates a 3.9 metre inflatable with 20hp engine.

16 members are currently qualified to operate these boats to MCA Rescue Boat guideline standards.
